The FSA Training Conference for Financial Aid Professionals is the largest training program in the United States serving the financial aid community, and ultimately the students and families seeking an education beyond high school. The FSA Conference is not for government employees, but it is training provided for financial aid professionals by the government for those schools/institutions receiving Title IV funds.

FSA provides more than $150 billion of federal Title IV funds in grants, loans, and work-study programs to more than 15 million students. By law, schools are accountable to abide by and comply with the rules and regulations of the Title IV programs they administer. Ensuring the proper training of these institutions disbursing these funds is an investment in protecting the taxpayer dollars from fraud, waste and abuse.

World-wide annually, approximately 6,000 financial aid professionals attend this free training to learn more about federal regulations and new legislation passed by Congress, gain hands-on experience using the student loan data systems, interact with federal subject matter experts, and network with peers and colleagues to share industry best practices.

For 2013, the FSA Training Conference sessions will focus on topics related to changes in Title IV regulations and legislation such as Gainful Employment, 150% Direct Loan Sub Limitation, Pell Grant Lifetime Eligibility Limits, Loan Repayment Options, as well as how to prevent fraud, and protect students' privacy and their loan data. Financial Aid Professionals will also learn how to implement these changes at their schools, and will be able to practice face-to-face, hands-on using the student loan data systems, such as COD and NSLDS. There will also be staple sessions like new changes to the financial aid application and the protection of students on campus (Clery Act), as well as sessions on cash management and loan reconciliation.
